So I went to the orientation meeting for the Gastric Bypass the Lap Band wasn't an option with this meeting.. Didn't know that.. But, These are my thoughts on this....
This life is not the life for me...
First off look at your thumb that would be you stomach... You can't even put a good drink of water in that thing.. Could you????
Never to eat but a 1/4 cup of protein 3 times a day, and making it take 30 minutes to eat, no faster or you will be in pain, for 6 months is not the life for me.
Drinking 64 Ounces of water sipping through a straw all day (they said it is hard to intake that much water through a straw all day. Many people end up in the hospital dehydrated. Never to glug water when your thirsty ever again...is not the life for me.
Never to drink Milk, never to eat a piece of fruit, never to eat a salad for 6 months is not the life for me.
To look gaunt for a long long time is not the life for me.
To pay just The Doctor $30,000. plus then all the other physicians on top of that is not the life for me.
Get off my lazy fat butt and walk, and eat right, and quit being a lazy yahoo... That is the life for me.....
Sorry, guys but, I really don't think that bypass is the life for me.... or even the Lap-Band is for me.
So the plan now... I go to the insulin nurse on Tuesday and the dietitian on Thursday and start walking... hmmm This will be the life for me.
I will keep anyone interested in my progress... Happy Day
